How PID resistant are ‘PID free’ solar modules?

PID (Potential Induced Degradation) is a phenomenon that is causing degradation in solar cells due to a negative voltage on the solar cells with respect to the frame of the module. In PV systems, about half of the solar modules operate under such condition in a configuration with modern high voltage inverters.  This negative voltage […]

Extensive tests map long-term effect of PID

PID verloop

Scientists in Germany have developed a “heavy duty” test to provide insight into the long term effects of Potential Induced Degradation in PV modules. The tests go well beyond those established by IEC standards and seek to guide manufacturers and investors on the best choice of materials – encapsulants in particular – when it comes […]
